I have seen black tailed wallabies in the front gardens of my home suburb of Ainslie, ACT. Magnificent creatures

I wouldnt and actually didnt make any such remarks. Only indicated I didnt see the attraction it is purely your interpretation of that comment that suggested it was a negative comment

Re: An Aussie looking for AFL

I am moving to Switzerland and will be there this monday. Big Maroon and Brisbane Lions fan. Please let me know what subscription you are buying. I might have to buy the same while I am in Bern.

Hi everyone,

Just wondering if anyone can help me out with a pub/bar/etc. where I can watch Australian Rules Football? I'm this close to buying a subscription to watch it online, and would rather not a) spend the money and b) watch it on a laptop.

HELP!

Cheers!

Right that's it. I'm sorry but that comment warrants that you immediately renounce your Australian passport. Do not pass go, do not collect 200 dollars...

Thats cool, the best thing about the grand final pf both AFL and league was that the golf courses were always empty so I would always go for a game of golf.

Its a total error to think that all aussies even like these games.

By the way I cant surf either

I'm not a huge AFL fan either, but I can appreciate that people do.

When another Aussie asks for help, I at least try to give a helpful answer.
